Geocache Description:

It´s a multi-cache. The riddles are placed on two locations.

At the starting point you can see a house with oval windows. Count these windows and add the number of smokestacks. The result is XX.
The new coordinates are:
N48°13,500+XX²-(XX-5)²
E016°22,350-(XX*7)+(6660/XX)

When you reach the coordinates, turn to the east. You will see a big bunker against air attacks. Count the pointed components. The result is YY.
The new coordinates are:
N48°13,503+(XX+YY)+(YY-XX/2)
E016°22,361+(XX-YY)²+(XX+YY+10)

The new place will show you an orange number(=Z) The value Z cannot be seen anymore! Sorry. Z=4 , and two words, written in green letters. Transform the letters into numbers. Take this hint: A=1, B=2, ...Z=26!!
Now eliminate all odd numbers. Take the crossfoot of all numbers. The result is ZZ.
The new coordinates are:
N48°13,276+(ZZ-Z)²
E016°22,008+ZZ²-(ZZ-Z)²+100

There you will find a text with five paragraphs. Add together all two digit numbers (AA) and add together all four digit numbers (BBBB).
The original sign is gone. Therefore have a look on the picture to calculate the next coordinates!
The new coordinates are:
N4+AA*13+26
E4-BBBB+28*AA+23

Don´t panic!! Now you have to change the location. Take your car, your bike or take the public transport.

The next clue is a street lamp. The number you can find there is BBB.
The new coordinates are:
N48°14,821-BBB+327
E016°17,301+BBB/2+142

The last clue to the cache are two letters. Transform these letters into numbers as before. Now sum up both numbers. The result is CC.
The cache is hidden at:
N48°14,967-18*CC
E016°17,970-6*CC

You might have a problem to find the cache, because of bad GPS receiving. Look at the picture to find the Cache more quickly.
